Our dogs are designed to eat meat. And they’re designed to eat it raw. In a previous post, Tom Farrington MVB MRCVS VetMFHom – Chief Veterinary Medical Advisor for HomeoPet – gave an overview of what a raw food diet is and why you should feed it to your dog. But it’s not just theory. Tom is a firm advocate of a raw food diet and has so many cases where his four-legged patients have shown amazing improvements on the right Biologically Appropriate Raw/Fresh Food Diet.
See the results for yourself….
Raw Dog Food Diet case 1 – Micky
Mickey (pictured above) is such a wonderful case he arrived on a commercial kibble diet and was changed to a BARF diet of meat, meaty bones a small amount of veg and chicken wings… the results are self-explanatory!
Raw Dog Food Diet case 2 – Basil
My second Raw food case was my own dog, Basil. As a practicing vet, I fed what I had been taught was best and so fed the most expensive kibble diet. When Basil reached the age of 3, my wife pointed out he had a horrible smell off his breath. A quick investigation revealed a huge amount of tartar. I decided to just put him on a raw food diet, stop the kibble and introduce just a BARF diet similar to Mickey above and within 6 weeks Basil had clean spotless teeth and went on to live to just shy of 17 years of age!

Note: Not all Kibble fed dogs will have teeth like this, by any manner or means. BUT raw fed dogs almost never have teeth like this.
The next generation’s teeth, having been totally raw fed from the time we got them! Ms Wigglesworth above and Raisin below, long after Basil did his puppy inspection!
